Long Shot - Looking for Griot's Silver Wheel Paint

Post by muscam1 » Fri Jan 11, 2019 4:54 am

I have a Style 5 wheel that needs some touch up (sprayed). I originally painted the wheels with Griot’s Silver Wheel paint back in 2007. Problem is that Griot’s does not sell this paint any longer. I heard that Griot’s was repackaging Wurth Silver Wheel Paint, so I picked up a can this past week – but it is a lighter shade than the Griot’s. I just need to touch up the basket weave and really don’t want to have to redo the center cap too, plus I want it to match the other wheels.

Here’s the long shot – does anyone have a can of Griot’s Silver Wheel Paint lying around from around 2007 (not sure when Griot's quit selling the paint)? Only need about a quarter of a can and if the can has lost its pressure, that’s not a problem.

Thanks in advance

Marc

Marc I think there was a reply on another forum. Go to any automotive PPG paint supply shop. They can scan one of your wheels, match the color and make a rattle can up for you. It will be a real good match and a reasonable price.

Thanks Bert - that's probably the route I need to go.

Marc I was at the Barrett Jackson Auction today and Griotts had a booth there. The fellows there said the paint should be available on line and if not use the phone number shown and call customer service and they should be able to find it for you.

Bert - talked with customer services and they no longer sell this paint. Sent you a PM but also wanted to get this posted to the forum as a follow-up.

Thanks again for your help!
